Search Seminars in Vancouver

Yahoo! Search Day is this Wednesday March 12th at the Westin Bayshore Hotel in Vancouver. The all-day event promises to introduce small businesses to the power and importance of search engine marketing. Industry leaders will share strategies, best practices and insight and provide attendees with a foundation in successful pay per click marketing.

The full-day seminar is $89 (but SOHO members pay only $59) as your ticket includes a continental breakfast, lunch, a copy of the Mastering Panama Report (valued @ $89 itself), and a $50 credit to get started with Yahoo! Search Marketing.

The line-up of experts includes Martin Byrne, Maor Daniel, and Joe Finnie of Yahoo! Search Marketing Canada, Bill Barnes of Enquiro, Chris Breikss of 6S Marketing, and Patricia Brusha of A Couple of Chicks E-Marketing. Enquiro’s Barnes will be expanding on his company’s research on search interaction using eye tracking technology to quantify what user interactions with the Google, Yahoo! and MSN search results look like.

If you can’t make it on Wednesday or work in the Tourism industry, check out Yahoo! Canada sponsored Online Revealed Educational Exchange at the Vancouver Coast Plaza Hotel the following day.

It’s a one-day Regional hands-on workshop on topics such as search engine optimization, social media, and revenue & distribution management for tourism and travel professionals.
